It does not have to be just one, it can be both, and more.
If it becomes a monthly occurrence, it will help encourage players to leave dead, dying, or solo, alliances.
It also is a good value in my case. My alliance is currently at 30/30. For $2.99 USD, I get 1,170 gems ( 300 + ( 29 * 30 ) ) for my alliance.
I have a hard time NOT buying it given my gaming budget and its price.
Gambling vs. Sure thing
I think this is great. Thank you for sharing.
The first thing I did was paste @princess1 chat message ( see top post ) into the Featured message for teammates like you and your spouse.
For people not in this situation, I spend a lot on hero roster slots, hero teams, and early in the game 500g offers for 3* ascension items. So I feel this is a great gift to my Elder player teammates with smaller hero roster slots, less hero teams, and missing a few 3* ascension items ( and have 2x to 3x rainbow 4* 3.60 teams).
Oh. and avatar shop. I must not forget my cool avatars, backgrounds and pins.
And Atlantis Rising WE refills. And Emblem packs. And Hunter’s special - if the come up - Harpoons, Titanium Shield and Panacea for triple bosses in Seasonal events and Challenge events. And 75g continue for 4* ascension item rare quests.
